The Black Tux + Piper's Pantone Picks

Last week,  I was introduced to a company I had never heard of before, but definitely wish I had! The company is  The Black Tux, which is your "not so traditional online suit and tuxedo rental company." Their website is so cool: you go online, pick out the desired look for your wedding or event, and in put all of the measurement and payment information right there. I think this is a great option for wedding parties where most of the groomsmen live out of town. They can just login once and be done!

The Black Tux inspired me to pick my favorite look on their site, and pair it with complimentary details in this year's Pantone colors: Rose Quartz and Serenity.  I was super excited, because while planning my own wedding, I've also mentally planned about a half a dozen more! This collaboration was the perfect excuse to dream up what I might do differently if I were planning a different look for my wedding.

Floral prints are a big trend for 2016, especially in bridesmaids dresses. I love how this one encapsulates both the Rose Quartz and Serenity colors in a muted and pastel way. The soft floral pattern of this Plum Pretty Sugar Couture Billy dress adds depth and a touch of romance to the dress without the possibility of competing with the bride!

Complementing the dress are these soft pink Coach heels {I love the scalloped edges--what great detail!} and these pendant Kendra Scott earrings in the same color. This metallic blue clutch coordinates nicely with the colors in the dress. I think a clutch is a great addition to the bridesmaid ensemble, as it provides a cute way to carry all the wedding day essentials without the hassle of hauling around your normal purse with such a pretty gown.

A great way to finish off the look is with this stunning, sparkly lip gloss. While bridesmaids may not mind wearing the exact same dress, they may not all want the exact same make up style. Consistency is key, in regards to amount and formality, and the same lip color is a nice way to tie it all together. I love lipstick, but know a lot of ladies are fearful of such a color commitment. I love the soft hue of this Milani gloss, and all the glitter in it, too!

Be sure to check out The Black Tux suit and tuxedo rentals if you're planning a wedding, and want an easy option for the men in your life! I really loved their navy tux with the black lapel, but my favorite was this one, the notched lapel tuxedo. The sheen in the lapel and the pant-stripe adds such a glamorous touch which is totally my style!
